We have the solutions to transform your ideas into reality, while maintaining the authenticity of the images that represent your brand.
We are here to provide you with an amicable and professional relationship that fosters productive collaboration on award-winning projects. Our passion is grounded in extensive experience that allows us the unique ability to create images that fully realize the potential of their concepts. This is accomplished through discipline, dedication and a meticulous attention to detail so that the resulting impact or subtle nuances are flawless in their visual presentation. Studio KB's team is handpicked for their years of both technical and artistic experience. This allows us the basis necessary to provide superior imaging solutions while keeping your budgets and deadlines in mind.
Studio KB prides itself on its ability to see the vast picture simultaneously with the minute detail. Being consistent with this philosophy, we are organized to handle projects that range anywhere from single-image minor retouching, to multi-image composites, to large-scale productions including advertising campaigns and interactive websites.
Who, When and Where:
Kevin Buckley earned his Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis in drawing and painting from the University of Southern California. He founded Studio KB in 2004 and remains the Owner and Creative Director. The firm is located in beautiful, sunny southern California. Here, we use state-of-the-art Apple computers, ICC profiled workflows, color-calibrated monitors, Wacom tablets and Epson printers. Whether you prefer over the shoulder collaboration, would like an artist on location or would like to collaborate online through solutions such as Basecamp or Dropbox, we can provide you with a pleasing and seamlessly-produced product.
We recycle (95% or higher) of all materials. We conserve electricity by using sleep mode, shutting down and using Energy Star products whenever possible, enforcing a lights off policy when rooms are vacant, and using natural light, CFL or LED when needed. We conserve materials by duplex printing with SFL paper, using draft mode, and using Digital Signatures in conjunction with email. We use Basecamp and Dropbox in conjunction with email to collaborate and we use a filtering water pitcher and reusable water bottles opposed to disposable. This all helps to lessen our impact on the planet.
